While road tripping the South Coast recently, I started a brief, experimental sewing project, with car movements dictating where every stitch would begin. Along the way, I soaked the work in the turbulent ocean. I then stitched a length of found fishing line into the outer edges of the cloth. Finally, I traced charcoal (sourced from the remains of beach-bonfires) into the salty valleys of fabric. Impregnated with evidences of the sea and the surrounding landscape, the cloth represents 293 km's worth of travel - 4 hr and 17 mins.
